I finally shelled out for some proper sharpening stones. I went with the 8” dmt solid surface stones and purchased a set from ( I have to say it killed me to spend more on sharpening stones than on any single handtool, but I know I need them. I also ordered some leather for a strop. I’m haven’t decided how to set up the sharpening station. I want to get more into carv...

Making all wood folding knives #4: Setting,Shapening the Blades and Body

04-30-2016 09:50 PM by poospleasures | 3 comments »

Lets work the blades. Hold them together and put them into the body with bolster and blade holes in line. Push down on them a bit and push a sharpened 6p nail thru all four parts. Shape the back end of the blades as shown in the picture. The nail will be the temporary pin for a while.Extra careful now as I have broken a spring in some of these next steps. You now have tension between the blade ends and the spring ends. Now one at a time gently close a blade half way then finish to cl...

So April was National woodworking month. I have not had much time to get into the shop but have had a bit of time to celebrate this fact.During a visit of some family in the early part of the month I got to talk to them and show them some videos about woodworking, also got a chance to work with them and their girls and Sophia on the monthly Home depot Project. It was too cold and busy to stay at the Home Depot so we brought the projects home and worked in the garage, it was big hit. ...

Coffee table #3: Progre 4

04-30-2016 12:09 AM by Markymark | 3 comments »

This week I used the band saw to cut an angle on the lags. Then sand the cut part flat with the belt sander. Then the lags and end aperons flat on the table. Then lined them up and score them together. Then turn both parts on the side. I grab the rail and lade it flat. Then level the two parts with the rail and screw them together. Then measured the bottom part of the railing 4 inches down to screw the lower railing.

Making all wood folding knives #3: Some critical fitting in this entry

04-29-2016 11:43 PM by poospleasures | 4 comments »

Welcome back everyone. I must say again that I did not realize how many steps to this until doing this blog. I am not sorry I have made so many of these knives as they have paid a bunch toward buying my shop tools plus I still like the challenge of making each one better. Enough philosophy on with the show.If you plan on signing or dating now is the time. I do mine with a cheap wood burner. Now glue the spring assy. to the handle assys. And important point here is to put the back clamp on ...

Conference Room Table #1: Table top help

04-29-2016 11:24 PM by RPG | 2 comments »

Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...

Folded Cube Table

04-29-2016 08:47 PM by Rick M. | 15 comments »

I’m calling it a folded cube because it’s supposed to look folded, and it’s a cube. I’m open to better names :) Made this table/stool with my daughter. No finish yet as it was due this morning and we didn’t start until late afternoon yesterday. It was one her design school projects. The design and design process are what’s important. I think it turned out very well considering all the miters. The top has 4 sides mitered. Four of the leg pieces have 3...
